The unit of a position cannot be changed once the position has been created. If there are no applications tied to the position, the position can be deleted and recreated in the appropriate unit.


Note that while some areas are easy to change at any time, such as the members of the committee, it is recommended to exercise caution when editing other areas, particularly the required documents and application forms. Changes to required documents and forms initiated after the position opens may result in issues with the complete/incomplete status of individual applications.


Adding a New Form to an Existing Position

Applicants will not be automatically alerted when there are new requirements or forms added to a position. Administrators should use the bulk email option to communicate any changes. 


Although applicants will not be alerted of new requirements, they will see that their application is incomplete when they login to Interfolio. Be sure to archive applicants that are no longer being considered so those applicants will not see the incomplete application status.


2b. Delete a Position

If there are any applications tied to a position, that position can only be closed and archived, not deleted.


Once a position is deleted, it cannot be recovered.

  1. Select Delete Position under the Position Actions dropdown on the top right-hand side of the page.
    Delete Position selected under Position Actions dropdown
  2. Click Delete Position to confirm the decision.
